A Blessing for Advent and Christmas

At Christmas, we celebrate the love of God that sustains us at all times.


The Darling of the world is come,
And fit it is, to find a room
To welcome Him. The nobler part
Of all the house here, is the heart,
Which we will give Him; and bequeath
This Holly, and this Ivy Wreath,
To do Him honour; who's our King
And Lord of all this revelling.

Robert Herrick (1591-1674)

Peace, contentment and safety - that is what we all wish for ourselves and for everybody else in this world.

As a year of unresolved conflicts, daily challenges and crises in politics and society comes to an end, Christmas reminds us once again of what is really important in our lives. At Christmas, we celebrate the love of God that sustains us at all times.

We wish you and yours a Christmas that will fill you with renewed optimism and strength.

We thank you for your support in 2016 and wish you all the best for the New Year.

Your Alexian Brothers
